correspondent has been following this from brussels, and he joins us now. is it clear yet if an increase will get this next tranche of bailout funds it is waiting for? >> it is not clear. after today's spat, greece is hoping that on the occasion of the next meeting, that could be cleared, but the problem is that some national governments -- sorry, some national parliaments, will have to approve this first. the timetable is tight. it is very difficult, and it was not at all clear from this meeting, which was dominated by the dispute between international monetary fund and the europe group ministers, just how quickly they could do that, but greece is saying it will be out of money, bankrupt, by friday november 16. they have got to raise money on international markets somehow, and they need the backing or at least the promise of that extra bailout to do that. it is a bit of a puzzle. >> how big is this difference of opinion we've been hearing about? >> big. what happened earlier today or late last night reflected the frustration in the international monetary fund at the constant pushing off
is expected early next year. >> our correspondent has been covering the summit for us in brussels. what happens now? there must be real anxiety among those eu countries that rely on this type of funding. >> after the meeting, the council president stressed that there was consensus among all the eu member states that they are working toward a budget of growth, and that is an important message to send to the poorer countries because areas like the agricultural policy seemed to be safe from further cuts. those are areas where especially poorer regions benefit, so that is good news. ahead of the summit, positions seem to be even further apart than they are now -- seemed to be even further apart than they are now. it is coming to a compromise, but the general feeling is one that they are trying to get towards a deal where positions still our part, and that is why they need a second ago. >> what do you leaders think they can achieve at the next summit that they could not achieve at this one? >> now it is time to go home and do some homework -- crunch some numbers, of course, but most importan

the opposition. the 47% notion -- that is important to his presidency. >> nina, break it down for us. >> i do not think he has a mandate. i think the republicans and democrats both have a mandate for compromise. when you heard from republicans -- it is like mitch mcconnell who said his job was to see that obama is never reelected. so, he has an edge year. he does have leverage. but it will be a long haul. he does need partners. >> rich mcconnell is on record as saying that -- mitch mcconnell is on the record as saying that he knows that the election makes some people think that the republicans are going to roll over. that does not sound like compromise. >> your definition of compromise is rolling over and excepting higher tax rates. that is the democratic definition of compromise. i would never suggest bias. the president ran -- i will say it -- the most negative campaign. he did not run on his record. he could not. he did not run on a program. there is one thing he got a mandate for, and he now has a mandate to raise the top tax rate on two percent of the population by four. ? that is the sm
